Modern Estonia

Churches of Estonia Checklist

Updated 24 January 2014



This is a checklist of the churches and other places of worship in Estonia which have already been photographed for inclusion in the History Files. Not all of them have been published so, to avoid duplication of effort, this list is designed to help contributors decide what to photograph and send in.

Churches that have been published are linked from here to the page which contains their entry. For a complete list, visit the main index page.

If a church is not on this list then it has not been photographed for the collection. Please feel free to submit your own photos for inclusion. You can contact us here.
